Mickle of the Arizona grocery, who makes a practice, o cashing the checks of his customers, was compelled to hack down on the established cus tom o! the store by refusing to oblige two of his oldest and most valued patrons. There is usually a sufficient sum on hand to accommodate his friends, but when two of them came in with checks of $2,1'00 and J1.2X5, Mr. Mickle re ferred them to a bank, at the same time expressing his regrets as to his limited cash on hand. These men own small bee farms and the checks that caused consternation in the Arizona grocery are the profits of the season, which only goes to show the variety of products and sources of welath in the Salt River valley. o MF:SA, Aug. IS. The burglary epi demic in Mesa seems to be continuing j without intermission. On Thursday j night thieves entered the residence of ; Ross Daley, located in the northeast- j ern part of town, during the absence ; of the occupants from the city, anil ! removing a trunk carried it across the j street to an empty rrigation ditch, and i removed the contents therefrom. They evidently were frightened away for a small portion of the articles were left. No clue to the thieves has been found. The residence was not in a thickly settled portion of the town, but even at that the act was one xf exceptional boldness. CAPITOL WAGS I T CERTAIN ABOUT IT Few More Days to Register ' Registration officer Pickens stated yesterday that he had registered ap proximately 1,540 voters, and that as 1 nearly as he could compute, there re .mained some :!00 people in the district as yet unregistered. Since registration j closes on September 30, all persons de I siring to have a voice in the primary election to be held on the 10th of Sep tember should get in touch with the officer. Pickens is busy each day cov ering different parts of the country district, but it may be impossible for him to see each one of the unregistered before the .10th. The district under his charge consists of Mesa precincts one, two, three and four. Alma and Lehi. First Ward has Social A delightful social with a program of music and readings, followed by games, was indulged in on the lawn of the first ward chapel. The ring of hammers and the swish; of saws to the rear of the capitol i today caused inhabitants of thai j structure to hang out of the windows' to the west expecting to see the new j addition rising from the depths of the! minature lake that occupies the site, j The noises of indusu-v came, how-; ever, from the work of putting up two' nouses just beyond the lake. These . structures are rather elaborate affairs.! and will house the tools, cement, and j other of the more delicate materials to j be used in building the new addition. A circular saw, run by a gas engine, j will be put in one of the houses also, i With this saw the lumber fur making I the concrete forms etcetera will In cut to length. I'pon seeing the frame structures go ing up, the facetious onlookers, of whom there are always some to be found in a crowd, began to speculati on their use. "One is going to be the boat house, and the other is going to be the bath house with lockers for the capitol employes to keep their bathing suits in," was one comment. o NO CURTAILMENT YET Wheel Stolen From Warehouse j irwiniiav uiui iiiiik r.uy .nassey oi i the Attaway-Latham Hardware com pany force, noticed a negro lounging around the warehouse.

This most haunting of all recent waltzes continues to grow in Vopiilarity every dancer lias swung blithelv over the polished floor to its soft, lifting strains played by band, by Hawaiians, by orchestras, or on the piano.

"Fore Warned Is Forearmed" SALT RIVER VALLEY HAY GROWERS, Gentlemen: A number of producers of alfalfa have shown us circular letters from concerns in Texas, that have proven very unscrupulous in their dealings, offering attractive prices f. o. b. loading stations, subject to destination weights and grades. These terms, destination weights and grades, have caused more losses and the boycotting of certain producing , sections than any other one thing connected with the shipping of hay. Good, honest clean cut business concerns, are always, are generally booked ahead, are at least amply supplied through producers and dealers soliciting their business. We support such dealers. They are requisite to the business. The present WOULD BE BUYERS are in a class by themselves that cannot buy twice in the same place. It is necessary to eliminate such methods in the business in order to put the Salt River Valley on a sound competitive basis with other producing sections. Dealers have paid dearly to become familiar with what apparently seemed good reputable concerns. We have established National grades on Salt River Valley hay. The Government buys on National grades. You can improve marketing conditions by selling to or through a local concern that will pay you one to $10.00 per ton more than your hay will net if shipped at random to Texas. "The Better the Grade, the Bigger the Trade," but honest weights and grades builds a reputation and a selling medium that is as destructive to "sharp practices" as our Soldier Boys are to the "Kultured Huns." With your co-operation we can stamp out "Kaiserism" in the hay business and make choice or number one alfalfa, or what we ship, arrive and grade and weight at destination the same as loaded at point of origin. We are. Yours very truly. i Southwest Hay & Grain Co. L. HARELSON. Pres.
